2017 Bissinger’s Bourbon + BBQ Tasting is Sunday
St. Louis, MO/August 25, 2017 (STLRestaurant.News) – You know how some things just seem to go better together? Bourbon and barbecue are one such natural pairing—sharing a sweet smokiness unlike any other. Add handcrafted chocolates specifically selected to pair with bourbon and barbecue, and the experience becomes transformative. That’s what Bissinger’s Bourbon + BBQ this Sunday (Aug. 27) is all about. The afternoon party will be from 1–4:00 p.m. at the chocolatier’s downtown event space, The Caramel Room at Bissinger’s,1600 North Broadway (4th Floor). It’s being billed as a real bourbon bash—and that’s not an exaggeration.
The bourbon tasting will feature more than 100 bourbons, including locally distilled products (Spirits of St. Louis, Wood Hat Spirits, Defiance Whiskey, Stumpy’s Spirits Distillery, Big O, 12 Foot Beard, etc.), as well as some of the best labels from Kentucky, Washington, California, and across the US. The Caramel Room’s executive Chef Nicholas Miller will create barbecue masterpieces to be sampled at several food stations, including a pig roast on the terrace. Since this is Bissinger’s’ you know there will be plenty of chocolate! Bissinger’s Head Chocolatier Dave Owens will be on hand with specially selected chocolates that pair well with bourbon and barbecue (think maple bacon salt caramels). There will also be live music from The Root Diggers & Stephen Paul.
